An excerpt …
Chris is patiently waiting when Billy enters.
CHRIS: You’re late - again! Do you know what time it is?
BILLY: Hey, the little hand is still near the 10 (Use present hour.) I’m not that late!
CHRIS: You’re 20 minutes late.
BILLY: Hey, if I’m only 20 minutes late … I’m 10 minutes early.
CHRIS: That’s for sure. You’re usually a half hour late. I guess I should be thankful. Why can’t you be on time once in a while? You know we have to rehearse today.
BILLY: Chris! Partner! You are so good at what you do, you can do it all in the time we have remaining. You’re the best actor I’ve ever worked with. No problem. We’ll get it done, and I’ll work extra on my own just to make sure we look good.
CHRIS: OK, never mind. Let’s get to work. If I blow a fuse every time you do something irresponsible, the whole city would be dark. In our last show, our timing was a little off on the politics bit. Vaudeville is nothing if it isn’t timing. Want to run through that?
BILLY: No. Let’s work on some new stuff for a change. I’ve written some new scripts and I was late because I stopped and made a copy for you. Here.
CHRIS: (doesn’t take it) (folds arms) Why do you do this? Why do you insist on changing our act? We have one of the most popular vaudeville acts on the circuit! Why mess with it! Leave it alone!
BILLY: Sure we’ve been doing OK but people come back because you have new stuff. They don’t want to hear the same old, same old! Pamper me. Just try it.
